Spirit

Director's Corner:- People in South-West Somalia have been known to be peace loving, and productive society. God blessed them with two rivers, ocean and fertile land. They have been law abide by citizens, productive and tax paying society. Due to civil war and unrest, they became neighbor with man made famine, diseases and stressfull situation. Thus became from productive people to aid waiting people. We can put them back on track if we can partners committed to help them became again productive thus reduce poverty level.

Water, Food and Extreme Poverty

At USAID’s second Frontiers in Development Forum, we’re focusing on the role of innovation, science and technology in eradicating extreme poverty by 2030. Over the past year, I have witnessed the potential of scientific and technological breakthroughs to address some of the developing world’s greatest challenges through our Grand Challenges for Development.
Our role at USAID is to help define these challenges, prioritizing key elements of the fight against extreme poverty. We then open our doors to potential solutions from a variety of disciplines, locations and specializations – in search of the most promising innovations. These Grand Challenges are developed in the form of prizes that have the potential to catalyze the world in the fight against extreme poverty.
The Securing Water for Food Grand Challenge for Development is an important element of this fight. The availability of water for food is crucial to farmers and others who depend on agriculture for their livelihoods. The number of people impacted by water stress and insecurity will only continue to rise, and providing simple, sustainable and cost-efficient solutions to this issue could help a poor family or community could grow more food, harvest a surplus, and earn additional income.
Over the past year, we launched two calls for Security Water for Food innovations. More than 570 applications represented more than 90 countries. Of these, we selected 17 award recipients whose proposals best demonstrated the potential to either enable the production of more food with less water, or to make more water available for food production, processing, and distribution.

We need your help to continue this work

    SDOP Program Measures
     
    While each project and community with whom SDOP partners is unique and varied, we have developed a set of program measures to cohesively tell the story and impact of our combined work. SDOP partners are asked to consider and report how their work contributes to these measures, both quantitatively and qualitatively.  Projects are not expected to demonstrate progress in all of the measure areas or even in each of the examples provided. Instead, each project will report what resonates with the results of their work.
     
     
    Develop diverse leadership/membership/engagement includes counts of participants involved in leadership activities, their diversity and the degree of engagement.
     
    Realize social justice achievements includes justice measures that build power for the economically poor and oppressed. This can be measured, for example, in changes in policy, transformation of unjust practices, increased independence and increased representation.
     
    Strengthen relationships, communication and collaboration includes counts of outreach activities into the community and the partnerships formed or strengthened.
     
    Expand education and skills development includes counts for the number and types of trainings and technical assistance.
     
    Increase economic development opportunities includes the reporting of activities related to strengthening economic opportunities for group members.
     
    Enhance quality of life includes measures of change and improvement across a broad spectrum of issues including health, housing, food security, transportation, safety, etc.
